H-E-B to bring Luby’s fried fish to the freezer aisle

Last year, H-E-B announced it was bringing one of Luby’s most iconic dishes — mac & cheese — to its stores. Now you’re one step closer to recreating a LuAnn platter at home, because the grocery store is expanding its partnership with the cafeteria, bringing fried fish (a.k.a. “square fish”) to the store’s freezer aisle starting the week of Feb. 20.

According to Luby’s, the fried fish will be $7.95 for two filets that provide four LuAnn-sized servings.

“Whether you know it as fried or square fish, this piece of Texas culinary history is easily one of the most recognizable and most ordered dishes in the state. We’re proud to have H-E-B as a partner, making it any anytime meal for its legions of fans,” Luby’s Chief Operating Officer Peter Tropoli said in a statement.

The only thing missing from your LuAnn platter? Another side, of course, and a classic Luby’s roll. These aren’t available in the freezer aisle just yet, so in the meantime you can check out these slow cooker recipes for green beans and mashed potatoes and give these homemade dinner rolls a try.
